Country legend Willie Nelson has postponed two more shows -- one in Arizona and one in New Mexico -- due to illness.

According to his website, Friday and Saturday’s concerts at Desert Diamond Casino in Sahuarita, Ariz., and the Route 66 Casino in Albequerque will be rescheduled.

A status on Nelson’s Facebook page stated that new dates will be announced when possible.

On Monday, the 83-year old icon postponed three concerts in California and one in Tucson, Arizona. In late January, Nelson canceled two of his five shows in Las Vegas due to a cold.

Nelson did, however, attend an event in Las Vegas on Jan. 31 to promote his new line of specialty cannabis and played three shows at the Venetian on Feb. 1, 3 and 4.

The singer is due to release his new album, God’s Problem Child, this spring.
